[January 23, 2008]  CALVERT, Md. (AP) -- A Cecil County man who phoned the governor's office with an opinion about the mortgage foreclosure debate realized he wasn't talking to a secretary when the woman who answered greeted him with a "Hi, sexy."

Pete Pritchard of Calvert discovered the number for the governor's office is misprinted in the latest edition of the Armstrong Telephone Co. phone book. The printed number connects with a phone sex service.

The previous edition had the same mistake. Pritchard wonders if he's the first person in two years that ever called the governor's office by using that directory.

An Armstrong executive said the directory information comes from a third party source not controlled by the company. He said the error will be addressed in a message included with February bills.
